WHAT MAKES DESOTO UNIQUE?
TAP/ Teacher Support
DeSoto is committed to the development of “Highly Effective” Teachers. We believe in teacher support because when a teacher is employed with us we want them to be successful!
DeSoto is a TAP (The System for Teacher and Student Advancement) District. Our ultimate goal is to raise student achievement; TAP provides the SUPPORT structures with incentives that are designed to maximize the teacher’s effectiveness. Teachers experience ongoing training with in-depth concrete models, which assist the teacher in the areas of refinement and reinforcement.
